and the anonymous ASQ reviewers for their he lp with later drafts. The death of 13 men in the Mann Gulch fire disaster, made famous in Norman Maclean's Young Men and Fire, is analyzed as the interactive disintegration of role structure and sensemaking in a minimal organization. Four potential sources of resilience that make groups less vulnerable to(More)
ATP-sensitive potassium channels (K(ATP) channels) regulate cell excitability in response to metabolic changes. K(ATP) channels are formed as a complex of a sulfonylurea receptor (SURx), a member of the ATP-binding cassette protein family, and an inward rectifier K(+) channel subunit (Kir6.x). Membrane phospholipids, in particular phosphatidylinositol (PI)(More)
ATP and MgADP regulate K(ATP) channel activity and hence potentially couple cellular metabolism to membrane electrical activity in various cell types. Using recombinant K(ATP) channels that lack sensitivity to MgADP, expressed in COSm6 cells, we demonstrate that similar on-cell activity can be observed with widely varying apparent submembrane [ATP](More)
The polyphosphoinositides, PIP and PIP2, have been proposed to regulate actin polymerization in vivo because they dissociate actin/gelsolin complexes in vitro. We tested this hypothesis by comparing the ability of EGF and bradykinin to affect PI metabolism and the actin cytoskeleton in A431 cells. EGF, but not bradykinin, was found to induce ruffling and(More)
The protein products of several transforming retroviruses as well as the receptors for several hormones and growth factors, including insulin, have been shown to possess a protein kinase activity in vitro specific for tyrosine residues in protein substrates, including themselves. In the case of pp60src and the insulin receptor, autophosphorylation activates(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signalling is activated by ligand-induced receptor dimerization. Notably, ligand binding also induces EGFR oligomerization, but the structures and functions of the oligomers are poorly understood. Here, we use fluorophore localization imaging with photobleaching to probe the structure of EGFR oligomers. We find that(More)
